PokerStars Team Online signs Mickey 'mement_mori' Petersen
There are people who know how to play online poker tournaments very well. And then there is Mickey 'mement_mori' Petersen.
Petersen is the top-ranked multi-table tournament player in his native Denmark. During his career, he's won more than $4 million in online cash alone. In 2010, he cashed 16 times in the Spring Championship of Online Poker and won more than $300,000 over the course of the series. Just a few days ago he took down the WCOOP 2nd chance Razz event. Like many other successful online pros, Petersen got is start in Magic: The Gathering. He gave it up when he realized he could make a living playing poker.
So, to repeat: there are online tournament pros, and then there is Mickey 'mement_mori' Petersen, the newest member of PokerStars' Team Online.
While we like to break the news here on the PokerStars Blog, we got scooped last night by our friends over on WCOOP radio. Petersen hopped on the show last night where he was revealed as Team Online's newest member.
"I see signing with world's biggest online site as the next logical step in my career and hopefully I'll be able to build on my resume live as well as online and promote both PokerStars and the game in a positive light," he said.
If you want to follow Petersen's action, you can do so just by opening up the PokerStars software. That's where he is most of the time anyway. However, you can also keep up with him on Twitter, by following the @mickeydp account.
Congratulations to Mickey Petersen. Welcome to the team.
